Opuntia stricta is a beautiful cactus native to the Southeastern US, including South Florida. This moderate-grower averages 3-6’ tall and wide. It is both heat & drought tolerant, adaptable to a wide range of growing conditions, and adorned with big, bright yellow flowers in the heat of the summer. Grow in full sun. This form lacks the long intimidating spines typical of the species, but be aware it is armed with short spines so they may not be suitable for homes with small children. Produces an edible fruit (this must be cleaned carefully to avoid getting poked). (Pot size: 2 gallon)
